One of the few bright sparks during Chelsea’s recent run of bad form has been winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Frank Lampard has slowly been giving him more minutes recently and the England international is really starting to show the fine form he showed before his serious injury, the type of form that got massive clubs like Bayern Munich trying to sign him.

But in my opinion he has been one of Chelsea’s best players in the last handful of matches and fully deserves a run in the team now.
The issue is he faces very tough competition from Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic, but the 20-year old says he has the right attitude and the right mentality to be a real asset for this Chelsea team when called upon.
He’s been speaking to The Telegraph and you get a sense that he is learning well from Frank Lampard, but wants to play now as much as possible.
“You want to play in every game and get minutes, but I also want to improve in those minutes on the pitch whenever I get an opportunity to play,” said Hudson-Odoi.
“Every time I get on the pitch I just want to give my best. I just want to make sure I am always ready. The way you train affects the way you play and, hopefully, things will go well. So I want to keep working hard and learning.
“Nobody is the perfect player, everybody has flaws.
“I want to keep learning whether it is on the pitch or at home watching clips of different stuff. Learning from the manager. He knows what is right for me.”
